  • Maintenance is too bad. The theatre and shows needs upgrade. Planetarium Show: High valued projector is used in planetarium. The show about planets in solar system is good. The sky affect is awesome. The Story narration should consider viewer experience. Any story narration will be driven by audio and video together. But here it is driven by audio with slide shows on various planets. Audio and video can sync provide good experience. It is missing now. The animation part needs an upgrade. Can't NIT members helps on this? 3D Theatre: The 3D show starts with roller coaster ride followed by Horror Story. Somehow it is not on par with the show provided in private theatres (within shopping mall) . This theatre surely needs to be upgraded. Parks in Planetarium: 1) Half of "Evolution park" is submerged in water. Not sure fishing activity is allowed :) 2) Environment Gallery ground floor is in water. So they switched off the power. Though it has good information, we couldn't enjoy much. 3) Herbal park maintenance is very poor. We don't see much herbal plants over there. 4) Science Park maintenance is poor. Government after spending several crores/lakhs of rupees in this initiative not sure why it is failed in maintenance. The prevailing poor maintenance brings up question on did planetarium officials are really sincere at their work? Do they really care about their working environment and quality of work? It is a great disappointment on that day. Anna planetarium in trichy surely needs government attention.
  • Good for Kids. Entry ticket of 45 rs per person for Park, Science Exibition, 3D show and Solar Show Total you can spend 45 mins to an hour The venue needs more items or love experiments to make it more fun
